GOAL OF THE CONFERENCE

The intent of this conference is to kindle the spirit of seeking the absolute nature of reality along with snippets of guidance from a mathematical point of view. Mathematics is wonderful tool we humans use to explore those parts of Nature that we cannot reach with our ordinary eyes, or even with instruments like telescope or microscope. Using simple symbols, equations and curves, different branches of mathematics take us deep into the secrets of nature. But how closer to Reality can mathematic take us to? Can the concepts used in exact sciences be sufficient enough to describe and provide us a complete picture of Reality? Or are there inbuilt limits in different branches of Mathematics such as Algebra, Topology, Number Theory, Geometry, Analysis etc.? What about the various mysterious numbers in mathematics such as ‘i’ or ‘e’, which we use but don’t comprehend? How about ∞? What about higher dimension spaces in Topology that we so often deal with but that are beyond any physical experimentation? Do the gifts and limits in various sub-branches of Mathematics over the past 200 years provide us a glimpse into Divinity? Could the beautiful mathematical knowledge give us hints about SOUL, GOD, mind, which had been attempted by Gödel, Pascal, Gauss, Ramanujan? And what about virtues in human beings such as humility, purpose, forgiveness etc. which we always crave for but are unable to have as much as we desire. Can Mathematics help us to explore with these? The present conference aims to explore some of these intriguing questions with an open minded approach.
